10/10 Exceptional

The hotel possesses excellent facilities and the staff are both pleasant willing to serve and know their jobs. We had an excellent time just relaxing in the room and making use of the spa, jacuzzi, indoor pool and steam room. Location on top of a hill provides excellent view of the surrounding area as well as the rugged beauty of Crete. Nothing really compares to having that sense of relaxation in excellent facilities nestled close to nature. Only slight issue is transportation to the hotel on arrival from Heraklion Airport. The transfer company only dropped us off by Malia church with instructions that the hotel was only a 10 minute walk. No mention of the steep walk to the hotel. Excuse the road is to windy and narrow for the big coach. We took a taxi instead and wise decision it was.Nonetheless I've nothing but praise for the hotel who have a shuttle service to take guests down to Malia. Keep up the good work folks.
